I guess I don't understand how things work in the Netherlands. With the current system, if you are at home doing some vigorous back yard wrestling
and injure yourself jumping off the roof, your company still pays 100% of your salary?
It seems strange to me to expect your company to pay any of your salary, much less 100% of your salary if you get hurt in your off time. Where I
work, we can pay for short term disability insurance, that will take care of you in an accident, but even that is only a percentage of your salary and
it is the insurance company paying you, not your employer.
